Those bikes in the photos look like originals.
I second that, I don't remember seeing a more true-to-the-original renditions of a bike.
No, I mean they really look like originals. They appear to have 75 years of scuffs and scratches on them. They don't look like replicas. It looks like they used photos of the real thing on that blog.
I can't find the video bit that Jay Leno did on his Brough Suprior.
Some old bikes of that era didn't even have valve oilers. You stopped periodically, and got out your oil can, and squirted some oil on the valves and rockers!I guess maybe wiped the road grunge off them too.Yikes!Beeeauuutiful bikes, though!I would LOVE to have one!One of the nicest bikes of all time, IMO.

I just finished watching Jay Leno's video for the umpteenth time. When I stop to think that the Brough Superior was twenty plus years ahead of our beloved bullets in many ways it gives me a new appreciation for Mr. Brough's passion for the machine and the advanced technology of it (for its day)
